Rooster is a plugin useful for extracting curves from images; a process commonly known as Vectorization of an image.
The Rooster component is present under the ‘Params’ tab in the ‘Utils’ sub-category.
The component can also output colors extracted from the image for each output curve.
Rooster is now supported by the ShapeDiver Platform!
Download the ShapeDiver Plugin from Food4Rhino
Rooster is also compatible with the Bitmap Parameter and the modified version of Squid included with the ShapeDiver installation.
